India beat Australia by 6 wickets
That is it from Nagpur where we have had a short but exciting encounter. India have leveled the series 1-1 and now the focus shifts to the decider in the third and final T20I which is going to be played at Hyderabad on Sunday, 25th September. The match will start at 7 pm IST (1.30 pm GMT) but as always do join us early for the build-up. Until then, goodbye and cheers!
Rohit Sharma the skipper of India is the Player of the Match as well for his 46 runs in 20 balls. He says he was quite surprised with the way the ball was hitting the bat and he is glad about the way it went. Claims that in the last few games he has been playing in the same way and they can't plan too much in such a game, just use the conditions to their advantage. Tells that the bowlers did well initially but with dew coming in they were not able to grip the ball but feels they will learn from these tough conditions. He Mentions Jasprit Bumrah coming back after months and that back injuries are tricky but does not want to analyze much. He adds that he is happy he got a crucial wicket and is slowly getting into his rhythm. About Axar Patel, he says that he has fulfilled the role of Jadeja well and can bowl in any phase of the game bringing a lot to the table. About Dinesh Karthik he claims that he is glad he could play and got time in the middle and they hope he can continue to play the finishing role. Credits the ground staff who have been there since afternoon and praises them for getting the game going for the crowd.
Aaron Finch the captain of Australia says that they just went out and executed their plans. Informs that he is enjoying his time with the bat up top. Praises Rohit Sharma for his brisk innings and also Axar Patel with the ball. Says that they proved to be the difference. Adds that Matthew Wade has really grown in the finishing role. Says that when Adam Zampa took consecutive wickets, they had an outside chance and should've picked up more wickets at regular intervals to take the game away from India.
Time for the presentations...
Dinesh Karthik is up for a chat. He says that there wasn't too much chat. He made his plan on the spot and is glad he executed it really well. Mentions it feels good to get the winning runs. Adds Rohit Sharma stood out with the blade and Axar Patel with the ball. He says they have a solid squad and it is all about making the most of the momentum. Says that he is really happy they can put out a show in front of an amazing crowd in Nagpur.
India began the game well claiming Australian wickets early courtesy of Axar Patel who bowled an outstanding spell but cameos from Aaron Finch and Matthew Wade pushed them to a reasonable total. However, the run chase was all about Rohit Sharma who played through the inning and sealed a comprehensive win.
India got off to a flier courtesy of Rohit Sharma who looked to be dealing only in sixes and along with KL Rahul put on 30 runs in the two overs of the Powerplay. Adam Zampa was brought into the attack and claimed the wicket of KL Rahul in his first over. He turned the game on its head when he dismissed Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav in quick succession in his second over but India were still ahead of the required rate. It gave Hardik Pandya and Rohit Sharma time to consolidate the inning but the former departed in the penultimate over. Rohit Sharma stayed unbeaten on 46 in just 20 deliveries to take his team home along with Dinesh Karthik. Adam Zampa was by far the pick of the bowlers claiming three wickets and conceding just 16 runs in his 2 overs.
This is why Dinesh Karthik is known as India’s finisher! He needed just 2 deliveries to close out this game. However, the credit goes to Rohit Sharma who has powered India to a 6-wicket win with 4 balls to spare (D/L method) and they have now leveled the series going into the third and final game. Australia did not start well in the Powerplay and despite picking wickets in quick succession found themselves behind in the game. They will not make much of this result though with the game being shortened and will be glad they were able to have a close contest out there.
